I'll start with one adapted or modified from one from O'Neill Williams's sayings on Radio & TV:

"If you are too busy to go hunting, then you're just too busy!"

I coined a phrase about 10 years ago for my dad. He used to shoot the first legal buck he saw, even if it was only a 2" spike the first few minutes of daylight on opening morning.

"If you see bone, lay it prone."
"vegetarian": old indian word for poor marksman.
1: "If it's brown its down"
2: "If it flies it dies"
3: "Enjoy all of god's creatures....right next to the taters and gravy"
1)Wrap it up with bacon and chunk it on the grill.
2) If its still runnin you aint stuck.
3)" I'll quit yellin if you'll drive with the lights on"(Me on my last huntin trip with my brother on a moonless early morning in Greene county Alabama, Man it gets dark there)
4) You cleaned it skinned it and cooked it with one shot.(deer hit with a .300rum at 60 yds)
